Forever Fern Friendship Card

If you know someone who could use a little pick-me-up, how about this Forever Fern friendship card?  It’s time to play at Festive Friday Challenges – home of the Inspo List!

Forever Fern Friendship Card

For this week’s challenge,  we are inspired by National Ice Cream Sandwich Day.  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion.  Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. I selected sweet sentiment, pink, brown, vanilla, circles and die cut from this week’s Inspo List.  I hope you will join us in our challenge this week. I can’t wait to see what YOU create.  And if you would like to celebrate with an ice cream sandwich, that’s all the better!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

I had so much fun creating today’s card! I used a sketch from a previous Paper Players challenge, and added lots of little details, including a gold hoop.  I used glue dots to attach it, simply placing them in areas which would be covered.  While I tried a variety of ribbons, I decided to use the gold ribbon which is part of the Boho Indigo product medley (153132). I then topped it off with a gold twine bow, using the twine from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  The gold ribbons coordinate so nicely with the gold laser cut leafy frond, which is used as a backdrop for the ribbons and cluster.

To add interest, the sentiment was stamped onto designer paper, and cut out with a Stitched Shapes die. Of course, I could not resist adding a few Champagne rhinestones.
